New truck! New to me anyways!


#1

Got a new buggy today! New build will be fun!


#2

Congrats! Keep us updated on the build. Good looking truck.


#3

Nice!! Seems flatbeds are all the rage with the cool kids these days…

I’m a trailer man myself. I can’t have a vehicle tied up for a singular purpose.

Looking forward to build out pics.


#4

Very nice! I am jealous!


#5

You mean, “work”? :smirk:


#6

Welcome to the flatbed truck club mate, they dont look cool but they make $$


#7

She will look cool tomorrow when this same snow blade gets mounted too her!


#8

No, I mean if my van is in the shop for some reason, I can’t use a flatbed to handle my window cleaning jobs, but I can unhook my PW trailer and use my truck until the van is fixed. If my truck is down, I can pull my PW trailer with the van. I don’t want a dedicated vehicle that has all my stuff mounted to it.

Wow, what a beast. Have fun, I quit plowing last year. I only miss it a little bit:sweat_smile:

So whoever invented the process of recapping tires should be hung in the streets! About an hour into the 4 hour drive home I had a drivers side rear tire explode at 70mph! It was a brand new tire… went to a truck stop and they don’t sell that small of tire and Walmart wouldn’t do it. I find it ironic that I bought this truck with Walmart’s money but they couldn’t take any back to put a tire on. So I bought the tire from them and drove it the 3 hours home on 5 tires!

She’s in the driveway!

I’ve had good luck with the Hercules tires in both 16 and the 19.5 . There cheap and last about 60000. I stepped up and put Goodyear tires on this time. There wear like iron but absolutely suck in the wet. Never had that problem with the Hercules.


#12

If they suck in the wet I wonder how they do in the snow?


#13

Time to find a spare.


#14

Looks like a great truck at a great price!

Have you plowed with them before? I was thinking about getting one and plowing during winter. Is that a 4x4? How much would a plow setup run on one of those if you dont mind telling?


#15

I actually talked them down to $7,000 for the truck. Out the door with plates and fees was $8,010

The plow I’m putting on is about $7,300 installed.


#16

Can’t hide money


#17

What ya mean?


#18

It’s 2wd but with 8,000 pounds of de-icer sitting on the bed I’m not worried about traction.


#19

Great talking my man!

Seems like a good price on a plow. I’ve never priced one before. It doesnt look like it had one before so that’s for a complete install, right?


#20

Lol. Just dont run low on de-icer.
